    Suppose you have no electric, no gas oven, no open fire or BBQ, how will you cook a Jacket spud?

    Assuming you have a gas ring, then you need to acquire a Double Skillet or a Dutch Oven!

    Pub sounds good.
    I know you can get a proper Dutch oven but can you use a heavy pan (cast iron) with lid, does it need a diffuser under it?

    If you are on the move wrap the spuds in foil and put in the slow cooker which is running from the inverter.

    If you are going to use an inverter, I would think a small microwave would be as good as owt, I know t says no bbq but you could get a disposable one , plenty good enough for a couple of tatas

    In the absence of being able to get a double skillet, a quality pan with a tight fitting lid should do instead, you don't want one too big as it will take too long to heat up.

    About 6 hours. I rub with oil and salt (or salt substitute). It's amazing what you can do in a slow cooker but get one that doesn't need liquid in it. I've baked cakes and bread in mine...... about two hours for each but it needs trial and error to get right!
